Apple Watch Series 4 display wins a Display Industry Award

The Society for Information Display (SID) has announced the winners of its 25th annual Display Industry Awards. Apple’s LTPO OLED display for the Apple Watch Series 4 is among the winners.

The 2019 Display Industry Award recipients reflect “the ever-evolving display product landscape, with products designed to support wearables, immersion, vehicles, augmented reality, personal productivity, and more.” The honorees will be recognized during the awards luncheon on Wednesday, May 15, as part of Display Week, to be held this year at the San Jose Convention McEnery Center, May 12-17.

Here’s what SID has to say about the OLED display fo the Apple Watch Series 4: “While retaining the original signature design, the fourth-generation Apple Watch has been refined, combining new hardware and software enhancements into a singular, unified form. The striking display, which is more than 30 percent larger at 40 mm or 44 mm, depending on the model, seamlessly integrates into the thinner, smaller case, while the new interface provides more information with richer detail. The display is the defining feature of Apple Watch, and Series 4 pushes that feature farther than ever. The challenge for designers was to make the display bigger without noticeably increasing the size of the case or compromising the battery life. Narrower borders enable a viewing area that's more than 30 percent larger, while a new display technology called LTPO improves power efficiency, helping users get through the day on a single charge.”
